My Gift – SSA
Music By: Michael Smurthwaite
Voices: Solo or choir
Lyrics By: Heather Smurthwaite
Description: This song contains a frequently felt Christian sentiment when empathizing with the wisemen, what can I give the Christ Child? What else but my heart and soul?
1. O Infant Savior come to earth, what can I give thee at thy birth?
No wisemen’s gold, no shepherd’s staff, no angel’s song, no bright star above.
Oh how can I show to Thee my love?
2. In my short time upon this sphere, do I have gifts I can give here?
I have a smile, a listening ear, a joyful song, a constant prayer,
A heart to understand and love.
3. O Infant Savior, my Lord to be; I give myself to follow thee.
To render help, to strengthen faith, to seek and lift; let these be my gift.
Accept, dear precious Lord, my gift! Accept precious Lord my gift.
